soft cotton beaded cuff rope bracelet 2480

 I find I'm having a bit more time after a big rush of orders to make another of these unique cuffs. This one is made with super soft almost plush cotton piping cord along with some of the hand dyed cord scraps lurking in the bottom of the scrap bin. Reduce, reuse, recycle...rinse repeat.

The outside edges are rimmed with a blue and green mix of glass seed beads that are worked into the seams of the cotton piping cord.
 Two large off white plastic buttons and loops make this secure and are easy to manipulate. The bracelet opens up at the loops and is a 7 1/2" (191 mm) inside circumference when closed.

The look is BIG but the materials are feather light and very soft to the touch. A bit of the tribal style made in new materials. This cuff is 1 7/8" (46 mm) wide and will really stand out.
This piece will be offered in an upcoming boutique sale. Check Finch's Holiday Time Boutique for details, place and time or visit the fiber art section of my Etsy shop to see some other designs similar to this one.
